"Mysterious inhuman unit" includes characters from "Black Butler", "Cuticle Detective Inaba", and more
A new promotion re-imagines 6 ghoulish characters from various manga published in Square Enix's GFantasy anthology magazine as a boy's idol group. The line up of Ayaka6 (a pun combining "ayakashi" - a type of Japanese ghost - with the number six) includes:
- Cyan, a monster from Shinigami to Gin no Kishi ("The Grim Reaper and An Argent Cavalier").
- Sano Mikoto, a hoodoo from Youkai Gakkou no Sensei Hajimemashita! ("I Began as a Teacher at Youkai School").
- Valentino, a goat from Cuticle Detective Inaba.
- Sebastian Michaelis, a devil from Black Butler.
- Hanako-kun, a ghost from Jibaku Shonen Hanako-kun ("Ghost Boy Hanako-kun").
- And Karasu, a specter-half from Youkai Nii-san ("Youkai Elder Brother").
The members of Ayaka6 will be featured on various character goods such as acrylic stands, stainless steel water bottles, tote bags, can badges, and bromide mini-posters which will be given away as prizes. Additionally, a special issue of GFantasy published in Japan in June of 2016 will feature character interviews with the members of the "mysterious inhuman unit".
